This year’s School of Arts & Humanities postgraduate conference seeks to explore the broad theme of cultural memory from a variety of perspectives. It invites contributions on any aspect of this theme from across the Arts & Humanities community. Proposals from Masters & Research Postgraduate Students are equally welcome. The organising Committee are also keen to hear from practitioners who could provide a creative response to the theme.
The conference seeks to explore key questions relating to the broad theme of memory, such as:
- How can we historicise memory?
- How do digital forms of record keeping impact on cultural memory?
- How is cultural memory constructed & mediated through art & language?
Topics may include (but are in no way limited to):
- Community memory
- Constructing cultural narratives
- Cultural memory & mass media
- Cultural memory in translation
- Cultural memory of language
- Evidence & testimony
- Folklore & storytelling
- Memory as an historical problem
- Memory, media & cultural mediation
- Myth & identity
- Oral history
- Remembrance & tradition
- Theories of memory
- Trauma & mass atrocities.
